Connolly's stunningly original debut tells the story of a young London gangster who is only 29 but has already made a mark for himself dealing drugs. His goal is to retire at 30 and spend his remaining years far from the danger and double-dealing of London's crime gangs. "Fantastic. The best crime novel I've ever read" (Bruce Reynolds). Basis for the film of the same name directed by Matthew Vaughn and starring Daniel Craig.
